Live Commentary: Godzilla vs. Monster Zero (1965)


Here it is, folks! The commentary that August Ragone and I recorded at G-Fest XXII is now available to download. So basically, I wanted to do something special and different for my favorite movie, Toho’s 1965 epic creation: Godzilla vs. Monster Zero (Kaiju Daisenso). And during his last visit, well-known kaiju historian and author of Eiji Tsuburaya: Master of Monsters, August chatted with me about what we could do as a future collaboration. This is one of those crazy ideas we came up with and I am very glad that G-Fest accepted the panel. After a long day of prep and panelling at the convention, this was the last piece of the convention’s programming of the day. I was wiped out, but it was fantastic to sit down and talk about my favorite Godzilla film with my friend August.

Just a word of warning on the audio quality: I didn’t have the control I normally do; so the actual film audio is pretty loud. so you may have a little more trouble discerning between us and the film. Anyway, big thanks go out to August for agreeing to be part of this panel Hopefully it’s an entertaining listen!

And and one more word on the commentary itself. This was a much more laid back recording – I can pretty much guarantee that we’ll be revisiting Planet X with the Kaijucast crew in the future!
